City begins traffic-safety effort

Signs going up on Comm. Ave.

Following a series of accidents involving bicyclists and pedestrians, Boston ­announced Monday that it is adding prominent pavement markings and traffic signs along a busy 1.7-mile stretch of Commonwealth Avenue that runs through Boston University.

The new signs include ones suggesting that motorists drive below the speed limit along the avenue, which is a treacherous confluence of foot, bicycle, vehicular, and MBTA traffic.
